Turtleneck Time

fall outfit turtleneck dress booties plaid scarf

Happy Friday! Is it just me or was this quite possibly the longest week EVER?! So much to do, so little time. I’ve been keeping a little secret for the last 8 months, a project that’s been incredibly time-consuming behind-the-scenes, but it’s really exciting. (If you’ve been picking up my hints on Instagram and SnapChat, you probably have a good idea what I’m referring to…) I always feel guilty when outside projects take over and I have to go radio silent on the blog for days at a time, but I’ll be able to spill all the details in about a week, so stay tuned!

It’s been full-on fall this week in Chicago and I kind of love it! It’s chilly, sure, but I’m enjoying piling on the layers, wearing my blazers, and topping off my outfits with a cozy cashmere scarf.

We all know I love a good turtleneck and I didn’t waste a day waiting to wear one this fall. I picked up this dress version at Zappos and love how it pairs so perfectly with my Pendleton scarf. I’m always looking for new ways to wear scarves, different ways to layer, and exciting ways to accessorize. I love how the scarf and dress blend so well together, you don’t really know where one ends and the other begins! The subtle fringe on the scarf plays off the suede fringe booties for a look that’s a little bit boho, but still classic with the neutral colors, feminine with the dress, and weather-appropriate for early fall.
